During the Renaissance, a collection of majolica signified affluence and good taste. Majolica also was considered to be the perfect gift for important occasions such as engagements, weddings or births.

Eric Juckert

Australian Ceramic Artist

Eric Juckert (1918-2004 ) started potting with Una Deerbon at her studio in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1936, then set up his own business at his parent’s home in Balaclava, making a range of pottery sold by Myers and David Jones under the name Jacqueline. In 1949, he moved to nearby Caulfield and, in 1954, to Riddell, near Gisborne, north of Melbourne. He went to England for a time, then in 1959 set up a studio on Phillip Island south of Melbourne and continued working there until 1992. These dates are from the Rameking and differ from the dates in Geoff Ford’s Encyclopedia of Australian Potters’ Marks. Works are incised ‘Juckert’ or ‘Eric Juckert’.

Harbridge Crystal

Harbridge Crystal Compote Art Deco style circa 1934
Vintage compote with facet pattern measures 8.8cm by 10.5cm and holds approx. 250mls. Acid etch on base Harbridge England.

Harbridge Crystal Glass Company was founded in 1928. The name is a contraction of the surnames of the two founders, Mr S. T. Harvey & Mr A. C. Bridgens, to make HARBRIDGE. Harvey was the visible face of the company and it is not known what role Bridgens held apart from being a director.

Harbridge had their own furnaces; within a year they had 16 cutters and by the end of 1930 they had grown considerably. The main driver for this expansion was the appointment of an Australian agent. Agencies followed in many Commonwealth countries and it was not long before more than 50% of their glass was exported and this percentage increased over the following years.

Harbridge had a good business supplying department stores where their name was not used. Their designs covered the full range of vases, bowls, jugs, decanters & stemware.
